A Yoga bag is a bag that carries your yoga mat as well as other essentials. If you are interested in efficiency and not wanting to have to find different areas to cram all of your gym and yoga gear into, then a yoga bag is definitely for you. It is important to make sure that your bag is big enough to fit everything you need into as well as the mat which will take up a large quantity of the room. This blog post will teach you how to make a yoga bag that you can do proud of!
First of All
Decide what you want your yoga bag to look like. This can be challenging, simply because there is so many amazing designs and fabrics that you can choose from. My advice would be to keep things nice and simple, you don’t want anything that is going to be too pricey or to out there. Just a nice one tone color is amazing. You can use linen, or denim, practically any material that you would like. You can even use old clothes so that they don’t go to waste! This way the yoga bag may mean a little more to you as well.
You need to cut out certain shapes and sizes after you’ve found the perfect fabric and look that you’re after. Below this paragraph, there will be measurements and shapes that you should try and cut out. They are just rough estimates, but its unlikely you’d find many variations if you looked at other measurements.
Body: 30″ X 18″ (76cm X 46cm)
End: Draft a circle with a radius of 3½” (9cm)
Pocket: 8″ X 6″ (20cm X 15cm)
Strap: 40″ X 5″ (102cm X 13cm)
Drawstring Cord: 31″ X 1½” (79cm X 4cm)
You’ll also need a small rectangle of sew-in velcro, just an inch or so long.
Mix it All Together and You Get a Bag
What you’re going to want to do is sew the ends of all the shapes inside so that they look nice and tidy. After this, you’ll want to sew the pocket to the body, as well as the ends of the yoga bag. you don’t have to do it in any particular order by the way. After the body is all done, you have to make the strap. There are many different ways to attach the strap, perhaps the best way is to just simply stitch the strap onto the body so that it is nice and secure.
And there you have it! Your very own yoga bag.
